Here I show how to pair the Ikea Tradfri Motion Sensor and bulbs with a Philips Hue bridge to allow motion sensing for the bulbs while still having Hue control so …
7:02 don't think that does anything
This is £9 plus one for adapter and hue e27 is £12. Why go for ikea?
Thanks, you solved my problem! The disconnection of the sensor was the key (press 4 times). Worked also with the iOS app for me
Hi, great video, does the ikea bulbs show up in the native hue app after pairing?
The adaptors to E27 fittings cost £1 for 2 at IKEA btw.
Thank you for the tip off with 'Touchlink' on 'Hue Essentials' – I had tried to parre several times via the Hue app, didn't work, Hue Essentials worked at once, saved me a lot of trouble (yeah, Ikea is at least 2 hours away!)
Thanks for turning all my 100+ lights on and off at home! hahaha! Maybe blip your alexa-saying in the future? 😉
Hi, do you see IKEA motion sensor in Hue Essentials app ? Like Philips Hue motion sensors? And could you set what lights should be turned on, or off after some time ?
Why do you need to pair the motionsensor with the hue bridge? Isnt it enough to pair the bulb with hue and sensor?
Bag of shit! These do not work with Phillips Hue. I’ve literally spent a whole day trying to sort these. Do not work. You’re better of sticking with Phillips!
Absolutely doesn't work for me. Connecting Trådfri bulbs to Hue works like charm, but the motion sensor doesn't. I have their newer version, I have no idea whether it syncs or not. I've tried to sync it, I have added the Trådfri bulb but once connect the motion sensor to the bulb, it becomes unreachable for the Hue.
While Trådfri bulbs are worth buying, I can't recommend buying their motion sensor if it is supposed to be used in the Hue system.
Hi. I found out there are two motion sensor in Ikea. Is it available for both?
Be interested to know if you could pair the motion sensor with 3 GU10 tradfri bulbs and the Hue. I'm wanting motion sensor in the bathroom
if you connect the ikea motion sensors with hue bridge can you then use IFTTT to use the motion sensors?
thanks good video you turned my lights off and on again 🙂
Good demo. I followed and got the lights show up in the essentials app but now it says unreachable. Tried on off but still same. Help.
Are these compatible with Amazon Echo (Alexa)?
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!l
What a nightmare this has been to try to get working. Now I can’t even get the ikea gateway to be recognized never mind trying to get bulbs into Apple HomeKit.
If they can’t make something that works they shouldn’t be selling it!!!
I feel like I got screwed over by ikea and am still waiting for them to get back to me.
The adapters for e27 to B22 are 2 for £1 from ikea
Hey Matt, quick question: Does the motion sensor still turn off the lights on the timer as well while the lights operate on the hue hub?
IKEA 5 MINS FROM YOUR HOUSE? must be the best thing that ever happened to you!
Ikea do the es/bc adapters themselves, 2 for a quid
Hello. Thanks for the video! Is it possible to connect the motion sensor to a set of lights (a room) or just one bulb? For several bulbs, does one have to do the last link procedure for every bulb?
It‘s mostly a good idea to reset the hue bridge before starting the pairing process. Just disconnect the power cable for a few seconds.
Matt noticed that you said that you had issues when using the iOS app with Touchlink to pair to Hue Hub. I had the same issue but found I was able to connect the TRÅDFRI sensor using Lamp Finder on my Mac (also available on PC) instead https://huetips.com/lamp-finder/ I hope this helps anyone else with iOS only or pairing issues.
Well done and thank you Matt – that got my Ikea bulb working with my HUE Bridge v1 – the older round one. As you say, the motion sensor works outside the app and of course it's easier to budget for.
Great vid thanks
If you paired the sensor to the hue bridge why do you then need to pair it again to the bulb? Surely the motion sensor is just paired to the bulb and the hue bridge is irrelevant in this setup?
Thank you! it worked with 3 Tradfi gu10 lights.
Thanks. This worked!
Thanks for the vid, very helpful. I paired the Tradfri motion detector to my Hue bridge, but it doesn't show up in the hue app. is this the same for you?
Whether the bulb and motion sensor added to Philips Hue are visible in the apple home app?
Hi Matt, can you please confirm you can still see/control the light in the philips hue official app after pairing it with the Ikea motion sensor? I've tried it several times but after pairing the bulb (Ikea) with the motion sensor (ikea) the bulb becomes unreachable in the phlips hue official app. Please let me know, Thanks!
Great video, but can I mix and match? E.g. IKEA motion sensor with Hue bulbs
Great video Matt! Love the way you show how to pair IKEA Tradfri with Philips Hue through Hue Essentials. Love from Thomas, dev Hue Essentials.
